Pink Sofas

Pinky Swear
Sorry, no pictures of the dining room yet.
I'm working to get it all done for the home tour next week. 
I may show parts of it soon but we've had no sun here so haven't been able to take photos.
So instead, I thought I'd share photos of pink sofas today.
Yum, I love this mod pink sofa mixed with a modern toile wallpaper.
That sofa looks like a big hunk of strawberry taffy.
What about that pillow? Really love everything about this photo.
My own sofa is pink.
That was the one thing I knew for sure. I wanted a pink sofa.
I consider pink a neutral. Almost any color looks wonderfully paired with it.
I don't think its a risky choice at all.
See how good that sofa looks with a black dog?
Here's Violet sitting on my pink sofa. 
I went looking for a good shot of my sofa and discovered I don't have any.
Well, here's a little of it from Christmas. 
I never show a long shot of it because then you see the ugly brown dining room furniture behind it.
But that is a thing of the past so expect lots of photos in the future of my own pink sofa.

I'm having a great giveaway!

I'm a proud member of the female populace but ironically, I am not a big fan of color pink. Although if I were to use Pink, I choose its tame version, like the one shown in the 3rd picture. I love the light pink paired with black. Weird but I find it sexy. hehehehe

By the way, thank you for the comment in my blog, regarding my stamps. I love your detailed suggestion. :)

I love these pink sofas!!! Especially yours. My husband would not want one though unfortunately. The one with the black dog is just beautiful too. And I really do like the modern one in the second picture...just soemthing about its clean lines...I'd like to sit there and read a magazine. Can't wait to see your dining chairs. The doggy fabric was cute..you really do need a pillow in that. ;)

The pink looks so warm and welcoming. Your dog is adorable.

Yay pink sofas. I saw some velvet sofas on One Kings Lane for 6,000 dollars or more yesterday, on sale, for goodness sake. If only I can find one at an estate sale...time and patience.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I loved that pic of the vinyl pink sofa with the terrific toile wallpaper. Heaven!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Thanks for posting this! Takes courage, but look how gorgeous!

Love the color of YOUR pink sofa...and cute little Violet is the perfect accessory for it! I love pink and think a pink sofa is fun, charming and oh so romantic...beautiful!

I'm all over pink right now. Just found some pink silk linen drapes at GW for $2.12 a pair, and lucky me, there were 2 prs. They are not near long enough but I'll find something to do with them. Thanks for sharing all these delish sofas!

Kymberly Foster Seabolt said...

Okay, I was prepared to be "meh" but, as usual, you make it look like a million bucks when you gather the images and bring them together.

Lovely!

Ana Paula Gervason said...

I love decor!
Beautiful sofas...

Have a nice day!

Hi Nita - Love the pink and black sofa, and yours is so cute!

Thanks for your kind comments about my home in a magazine. Also, it's funny, so far you're the only one who noticed that the back of my seat looks like the British flag, but that was exactly what I wanted it to look like. I know you get me ;-)

I'm typically not a huge fan of pink but those couches are fun. They sure brighten the room, don't they?

I think it's so fun that you have a pink couch!!!

I love your pink sofa, Nita. Is it vintage and reupholstered? Its got such great lines.

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

Carol -
My Sofa is vintage. I bought it at an antique store about 25 years ago. It originally was covered in a pinky peach fabric. It is suppose to be french and date back to 1910. I have the matching chair which I show a lot more on the blog...because the room is finished behind the chair but I'll show a good shot of the sofa very soon.

Nita, the pink is wonderful!!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I love the shade of your sofa, Nita. I also like the texture of the fabric. Thanks for sharing the pink sofas! Great post!!!

Allison said...

I'm a pink person so I'd be happy wiht any of those pink sofas. Your sofa is beautiful, Nita. That's a great shade of pink and I'm with you and consider pink a neutral. Violet looks quite comfy and adorable on your sofa.

Pink sofa. Great now I have ANOTHER thing I probably can't have because other people who share my living space wouldn't get it. Thanks. I mean it, thanks for letting me enjoy the thrill of a pink sofa vicariously. Love your blog - new follower here via Beverly's blog. Come say 'hi' at my blog sometime.
